Promote Content & Get Involved In Social Media – The Simplest Guide to Internet Marketing (4)

As part of my simple guide to internet marketing, today we are in series 4 and we are going to touch on promote content and social media. If you are just joining us in this series, I suggest you take time to read the previous three series. The links are below:

Now, back to today’s topic.

At the moment, social media is creating a great deal of hype amongst internet marketers and small business owners. More and more Internet marketers are making use of social media to assist them to promote content all over the internet.

A very important factor that I believe is crucial but quite a number of marketers tend to overlook is the planning you must do beforehand in order to be able to effectively promote content on social media sites.

One thing you must first do before you start promoting your content in social media sites is to network first. If you’ve developed good relationships with individuals on the internet, as time passes most will likely be there for you whenever you request they help you to promote your content. If people don’t know you, they are more likely to ignore your content.

Attempting to develop your network at the very same time you want to promote content isn’t likely to work.

Therefore, it is very important that you get involve in social media, not just so people can promote your content for you but also to get yourself out there…where people will begin to know and want to associate with you.

Basically, by distributing your blog content all over the internet, you will be boosting your chances of generating leads online. Social media also makes it possible for your visitors and prospective customers to converse directly with you online.

Although new social media tools launch almost on a daily basis, however, you actually just have to pay attention to the most important players..namely: Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.

One of the tools that I use and I’ve found to be extremely handy is the Facebook Post Planner.

Monitoring Social Media

An essential element of leveraging social media for business is to be aware of what discussions are taking place on the internet in connection with your industry and being able to spot the best point to respond to discussions. Most top earners in the industry use tools to monitor the web for interesting new content and mentions.

Monitoring social media can help you to find out who is saying what, and generally where the conversation is taking place so that you can respond. As your face and name begins to appear all over the place…you are enhancing your branding and marketing tactics.

Listed below are some fantastic tools you can use to conveniently keep track of your company and industry mentions in social media:

  • Google Alerts

Google Alerts are email updates of the latest relevant Google results (from the internet, news, etc.) based on your choice of request and subject matter. This tool can therefore be used as a powerful way of monitoring mentions of your respective brand and related keywords and phrases over the internet – news websites, in blogs , forums, and so on.

Basically you set up a number of Google Alerts for your company, brand, products, leaders, industry terminology, and many others. Whenever there is a mention of your request on the internet, Google Alerts will get the content delivered straight into your email inbox within the rate of recurrence you indicate (it could be daily or as they take place).

  • Twitter

Twitter can also be used to keep track of mentions of your respective brand on Twitter. By using tools such as Twitter Advansed Search you can perform some pretty powerful searches.

Once you set up your search, you can save the query as an RSS feed so you can keep up to date on the latest news.

  • Google Reader and RSS Feeds

Google Reader allows you to follow any site or blog which hasRSS feeds. You are able to classify these feeds as well as promote them to your associates. All you have to do is set up RSS feeds in Google Reader of searches of your brand or industry keywords in other popular social media sites such as Flickr, Digg, Delicious, etc.

You can also scan through the results in your reader daily for mentions…so that you can take appropriate action.

Google Reader also enables someone to effortlessly follow you on your social media accounts such as Twitter. You can connect via Google Reader with other users of Google Reader. You can easily create public profiles on Google Reader…this is particularly excellent for promoting your website or blog.

  • Facebook Insights

Facebook Insights allows you to have a glimpse of how many people are engaging with your Facebook Page.

With the recent revamping of the Facebook Insights System, there are two of the new metrics that really gets me excited and can help you see what is going on with your Facebook Page.

Knowing what is going on will help you stay on top of and participate in discussions that are taking place on your Facebook Page.

  • People Talking About – this measurement tell you how many people are talking about your page. This information will help you gauge what kind of interaction you should be having with your fans.
  • Friends of Fans – this metric allows you to know the combined number of friends that all of your fans have. This means that if every one of your fans shared your content all of these friends would have a chance of seeing it. This figure will more than likely prompt you to always encourage your fans to share your content.

Getting Started With Twitter for Business

Twitter is a social network site that allows users to share short (140-characters) messages with each other. Users “follow” or subscribe to each other and therefore can receive messages from each other.

Just like I mentioned earlier, if you are planning on using Twitter for business, it is best to use Twitter’s free search engine, Twitter Advance Search to search for your business, competitors, and industry mentions on Twitter.

If you can understand what people are saying about your business opportunity and industry you will be in a better position to determine if you should invest the time to start and manage a Twitter account.

Assuming you have decided that Twitter is right for you, you should in the first instance visit Twitter.com and set up your free account.

Here are a few tips that will help you as you set up your Twitter account:

  • Use your real (or brand) name as your Twitter username.
  • Use your own picture (or brand image) as the profile image for the account.
  • Use Advanced Twitter Search to help find your industry influencers and follow them. (TOP TIP! Your prospective customers/business partners are more than likely to be following them.)

Using Facebook for Business

With over 750 million people are now using Facebook, I am sure you will agree with me that Facebook is the key player inside the social media industry. Either you believe me or not…your prospects are on Facebook!

Facebook serves as an excellent platform for establishing an online community of promoters for your business enterprise.

There are three main ways you can use Facebook as a great marketing tool for your business and these are:

  • To establish a strong profile in order to show people who you are, what you can do, who you can help and what you have to offer.
  • To reach out to other people in your industry..NETWORK! To really make those connections by reaching out to others who are out there and share similar interests, and see where you might be able to leverage that and help out both of your businesses.
  • To reach your target market. Like I said earlier, YOUR PROSPECTS ARE ON FACEBOOK! One really neat way of connecting with them is to leverage that Facebook feature that allows you see friends of friends.

Those are the three ways to really leverage Facebook to market you well.

The first task in leveraging Facebook for business is to create a Facebook page. A Facebook Page offers a powerful opportunity to connect with your prospective customers. It is a place where you can provide news about your business, share inspiration and so on.

If you don’t have a Facebook Page yet, but would like to create one, just follow the simple steps below.

  1. You will first need to have a Facebook account before you can create a Page. So, sign in or sign up HERE if you don’t have an account.
  2. Go here to create a page and follow the prompts.
  3. Upload an image to represent your brand. If you are looking to brand you, then a picture of yourself is a great choice for your avatar!
  4. Uncheck the options to share and like this page. This will allow you to make any changes before making your page live and visible to others. You can do these things later once you have made sure your page is the way you want it.
  5. Provide a link to your website, and give some information about you and/or your business.
  6. Now your page is set up! Check out the ideas under Get Started, which is the next page that you are taken to. You can start adding content, promoting your page, and more!

LinkedIn: The Social Network for Business Professionals

LinkedIn is often described as a more professional, clean version of Facebook that displays resume items without all of the games that Facebook has. This social network media has of over 101 million business users.

If you are looking to get started with LinkedIn for your business, you can get started by using a feature located on a sidebar called Profile Completion Steps. You will need to set up and complete a personal profile for yourself, your experience, knowledge, passion and information about your business. Remember to include all important information such as your website and blog URLs.

Having created your LinkedIn profiles, there are two major features in LinkedIn that have the capacity to really showcase you and your business in front of thousands of other professionals and employers.

  • LinkedIn Groups

The LinkedIn Groups feature allows LinkedIn users to create and participate in discussions around a topic within LinkedIn. They are kind of similar to Facebook Pages in that they provide businesses with an avenue for leading discussions on a topic of interest with members of the LinkedIn Group.

With Groups, you can really brand yourself by sharing expertise, make potential business connections, and it can also be a great place to promote content and grow your network.

  • LinkedIn Answers

Personally, I think LinkedIn Answer is the most powerful tool LinkedIn has to offer. It is a feature that allows professionals to ask and answer questions about any and every possible business topic.

The questions could be specific problem or need that your product or service could solve. If you are able to identify questions and provide answers by responding with a link to a resources or your blog article that answers that person’s question then you will be offering a great marketing opportunity for your business. Ultimately, you can generate high-quality traffic to your blog from LinkedIn Answers, and get some really qualified leads as well.

Having said all that, I must warn you that you have to keep a reign on how much time you spend on social networking site as it is quite easy to spend a very long time without you knowing. Below is a post I wrote about daily checklist for social media, it would help you to plan your daily activities on social networking sites.

If you want a blog of your own, be prepared to devote at least a little time to learning which running a blog techniques are considered the most effective. Doing this can help maximize the results you get from your blogging efforts. Continue reading this article for useful information.

Stay accessible to your readers. You should remember that your blog is important to many readers so address their comments regularly. If you can connect with readers, they feel that they can contact you. You should remember that you have many readers who will be disappointed if you decide to quit blogging.

It is important that your blog uses search engine optimization. Because your primary goal is increasing your readership, it is important that your blog shows up in the search results when potential readers look for a topic about which you write. Your posts should include relevant keywords in the title.

It is important to appear authentic. Don’t look like someone who is a “know-it-all”. You want to show that you are being open and honest, as well as being transparent. Do this always. Your blog should be an expression of your individuality. Don’t try to reach a state of perfection; simply get better at what you do daily. Of course you will make mistakes from time to time. You are a unique person and that is part of your individuality.

Keep your blogs as clear and concise as possible. While depth and details are important qualities to keep in mind, going on and on will likely lose the interest of your readers. Blog readers do not require detailed and flowery prose. They are interested in the meat of your topic, not the seasoning!

Read all of your comment,s and try to respond to any feedback given without taking it too personally. Even if you choose the perfect topic, and write about it well, some people will have a negative opinion to share. If you read some constructive criticism, find a way to use it to improve your blog. Be courteous when responding to negative commentary, but if it isn’t constructive then let it roll off of you. You will give readers the impression that you are a mature individual who cares about what readers have to say, helping to grow your relationship with all of your site visitors.

Remain patient when you are attempting to grow your readership. It takes time for the word to spread about a blog. Content is key to gain readers, and it will take a bit of time to have a broad range of content to attract large numbers of readers. As your blog becomes more established and you build up a sizable amount of content, more people will come to visit it.

The size and scope of your blog has no limits. If you’d like your blog to develop a large following, it’s best that you update your blog on a regular basis. Keep these ideas in mind, and it won’t be long before you are running a great blog!

Marketers Domination – How To Improve Your Business With Effective Article Marketing

In order to make money by publishing articles online, people have to actually read your articles. Simply writing good or even excellent content is not enough. Marketing your article can be a difficult task, nevertheless internet marketers from around the globe are tapping into the benefits that comes with being a member of the marketers domination. This article is about effective article marketing, it contains some steps that you can take, in order to increase the amount of interest in your articles.

Before you begin your article marketing venture, it is important for you to understand exactly what article marketing is. Article marketing is a process where you write articles with links back to your website or to an affiliate site so that you can get traffic to your site more easily.

Do you Need inspiration for articles? Try scouring the news for interesting stories that relate to your marketing niche; Google News is a very good place to start. You can create an email alert at a number of news aggregators sites that will alert you to new stories in your niche. Using the day’s news for subject matter will keep your writing current, topical, and of interest to your readers.

No matter how smart you are or how wonderful your vocabulary is, don’t show off when writing for article marketing purposes. Effective article marketing �is not at all about your fantastic vocabulary……your average reader seeking a product or service may or may not be able to keep up with your dazzling vocabulary; that’s not why they are reading your article. They are looking for basic information on a product or service, so stick to the facts.

Article Marketing Directory

Use an article marketing directory to spark ideas for your own articles.Now to be clear; when I said go to article directories to read other people’s content to spark ideas for your own article, this does not mean copying or plagiarising other peoples’ content. It means skimming through several articles on your topic and getting ideas for new, original content that you create yourself. Sometimes, reading other articles is the fastest way to find your own inspiration.

There are numerous article directories out there but some of them are as good as worthless; not only do they contain contents that are unreadable they also get close to no traffic to them. If you expect people to read your articles, you should therefore do your research properly before wasting your valuable resources posting your contents to just any article directory.

Most article marketing directories will not allow you to include links and URLs to your website when writing an article for submission. However, there is a fantastic article marketing directory known as Marketers Domination that will allow you to do just that! Marketers Domination is a site that has all the article marketing tools that you require to effectively dominate. This site has various article marketing tools that are first class – niche keyword tool, content creation tool, ability to syndicate your content to 300 private site and many more.

Generally many of the articles that you write will be related in some way to your website. In these cases, including links to your website in your articles will be considered keyword anchoring. Keyword anchoring is not allowed on most directories but marketers domination let you have up to about five anchor links in your article.

Written Content

If you’re hitting a roadblock with your written content, best way to handle this is to start some controversy. Look around you and then pick known people or brands and stir up some arguments. This move becomes self-generating publicity as people are likely to link back to your blog. If you take the time to edit for content quality (as you should), your blog will be revived instantly, and you’ll boost the appearance of authority. you can also purchase PLR content from places like MLM PLR Store and modify to your taste.

Make sure that you have a great site. Everything on your site should contain well-written content. Your writing is what can really make or break you. If the content is sparse or severely lacking “body,” that is going to dissuade visitors and then you will lose out on future sales and traffic.

Try using some social marketing websites to market your articles, instead of just using article directories. Try using pages like Hub Pages and Squidoo. As long as you have well-written content, you will be amazed at the numbers of readers from these sites because they already get high amounts of daily traffic.

Content Distribution

Employ an RSS feed in your article marketing strategy. RSS is a way to automate content distribution. An RSS feed delivers your content (i.e. articles) to subscribers as soon as you post it. RSS is an ethical opt-in system that does not constitute spam, because users have subscribe explicitly and remain capable of opting out at any time.

Article marketing is not a hidden world of secrets that needs exploring. The same concepts you already know about marketing your business apply to article marketing, with the focus on distribution of your content. Being an effective article marketer and driving traffic to your predetermined locations, can be a bit tricky if you’re attempting to do it blindly.

The key to effective article marketing is to use proper tools such as provided inside marketers domination that will help you get targeted web site traffic. When you have more website traffic you will be able to increase your conversion rates and therefore increases your earnings.

As mentioned above, actually getting people to read your article is the key to making any money online with article marketing. By following the advice here, however, you are well on your way to having your own articles that will generate significant website traffic and therefore, earn you more money.

Blogs can have a profound effect on many people’s lives. If you are looking to have an influence on people and the issues that affect them, writing a blog may be just the thing for you. Read this article’s tips to gain more information on effective methods for blogging.

You should add to your blog as often as possible. Bloggers tend to begin a blog and then post inconsistently. If you blog infrequently, you will soon find that readers who were once quite interested in your site no longer take the time to visit it. At a minimum, try to post a new blog every week. In addition, send out frequent emails updating your readers on your content.

You must update frequently to keep your blog fresh. People will return often if they expect to find brand new content. If you do not offer new content often, readers will have no motivation to keep visiting. A general rule of thumb is to post new content no less than once, daily.

Include Images

Include images in your blog posts. There is a reason that a picture is worth so many words. The inclusion of images in your blog can enhance your blog by breaking up text content. Images are able to add more interest to a post. So, make certain that you include images as much as possible.

Pay attention to comments and respond to everything you can. However, don’t get upset or angry about what other people say on your blog. People may post criticisms on your blog no matter which topic you blog about. If constructive criticism is posted, consider using it to make your blog better. Although it may seem counter-intuitive, you should politely respond to flames and trolls, as well, but don’t dwell on them. This shows maturity and helps to increase your readership.

Use lists in your blog posts. Regardless of your subject matter, lists can make your blog easier to read and more enjoyable to navigate. Lists are useful for organizing and highlighting a post’s most important information, and readers appreciate them.

Maintain the health of your blog. Make sure that you keep your site up and running and in good working condition. Perform regular maintenance and always be on the lookout for ways to give the reader the best experience. This will help readers from getting bored, and will also ensure that nobody has a problem visiting your blog.

Mailing List

Aim to begin a mailing list for your blog as soon as you possibly can. Include the goal of using your blog to accumulate email addresses for a mailing list. This list can make you lots of money down the road. If you don’t start a mailing list from the beginning, you may realize you made a mistake.

Remain patient when you are attempting to grow your readership. Blog traffic builds slowly. Not everyone will be aware of your blog immediately. Additionally, until you have a reasonable amount of content, there will simply not be much available for readers to view. The older your blog and the larger amount of content you have, the more readers will see it and visit regularly.

The tips contained in this article should be helpful for you regardless of the purpose of your blog. Use the information that applies to your situation, but keep in mind that anything you write can’t be erased; so, think carefully before posting.

Social Media Marketing Strategies That You Must Know

Your business can stay up to date thanks to social media marketing strategies I’m going to share with you in this content. Many businesses do not yet have a presence on social media which will allow you to try social media and reach customers that your competitors are not yet reaching. The following article will show you how you can use social media websites to your benefit.

In order to increase your audience on Facebook, share content with your entire email list. If you’ve done online marketing, you probably are aware of and have your own mailing list. Leverage that mailing list by inviting all of your current subscribers to post on your Facebook page. This social media marketing strategy is very powerful as existing customers will be able to easily find you, and you may end up gaining a lot more in the process.

TIP! To get a wider audience make sure your content’s accessible enough. Make sure you put a humorous side to your posts, and be sure to avoid technical terms.

If you are a home business or small business owner, one of the very crucial social media marketing strategies is that you must ensure you do not try to create a ‘stand-in’ for yourself on social media pages. If you use an auto respond, it may create a bad reputation for your branding. A lot of the time, messages sent by auto-responders can be be seen as spam, and anyone who is following you will drop you because the messages are so impersonal. Every now and then try and write from the heart.

One of the most powerful ways to a successful social media marketing campaign is to give thoughtful consideration to the details of your overall social media marketing strategic plan. If you put too much time and money into trends, then your long-term marketing success will be limited by the duration of each trend. Develop a plan which includes your specific strategies and a reasonable timeline to follow.

Another one of the social media marketing strategies is to make a connection between social media accounts, such as LinkedIn and Twitter. This ensures that you are getting maximum exposure on all the networking sites. Your tweets will seem more professional, and you can use this to find more contacts. So, make sure on LinkedIn’s main site you install the application for LinkedIn Tweets.

TIP! Make it easy to subscribe to your newsletters. Some believe that using email to reach consumers is too outdated at this time, but the truth is that it can be the easiest way to connect with those that you wish to market to.

Social media marketers should use powerful media, but also be aware of where that media will be displayed, and ensure that it is of the highest quality. This means you should not shift all your attention to a video and forget about the landing page that will display it. When you do this, you will increase your chances of obtaining new followers and keeping the old ones interested too.

In order to not upset any of your followers, stay away from sharing too much of very personal or political information. While it may seem like a good way to express your personality, if you share too much, it can make you look unprofessional. Use a tone that is conversational, but do keep your focus to your niche.

Although social media marketing strategies employs many of the same techniques and tactics as other marketing methods, many companies are not taking full advantage of all the benefits it can provide. Use the tips in this article as part of your ongoing education about how to effectively use social media marketing for your business.

How to Effectively Use Traffic Exchange Sites for Network Marketing

If you are yet to read the first part of my post on traffic exchange (TE), I suggest you head over there first HERE and then come back here to discover how to effectively use traffic exchange sites for network marketing.

Just in case you have heard that traffic exchanges are waste of time, I can tell you that it is only those who do not treat traffic exchange sites as what they really are that find them waste of time. I shared in my previous post what type of sites/pages you should have showing on traffic exchange sites.

To use traffic exchanges sites efficiently, you must first and foremost understand how they work. Basically you view other people’s web sites for the privilege of them viewing yours. I am not by any means implying that the conversion rate on traffic exchanges is high, because they are not when you compare this marketing strategy to others out there.

However, you can get good results, as I am going to teach you simple tricks that can multiply the viewings of your sites by 5 times.

Below are the strategies you may wish to employ:

  • Sign-up at a minimum of 5 traffic exchange sites – if you are still with me, I will explain why a minimum of 5 TE sites. Below are some traffic exchange sites I recommend:
    • Traffic Ad Bar
    • Tabzi (Currently in pre-launch – looks very promising; a traffic exchange and social network for internet marketers!)
    • EasyHits4u
    • I Love Hits
    • Traffic-Splash
    • Sweeva
    • Hit2Hit
    • StartXchange
    • Traffic Swarm
    • WebBizInsider
  • Register your website URL in all the traffic exchange sites you signed-up for.
  • Decide before hand how many websites or how long you are going to surf every day. Traffic exchange sites can be very addictive. So, be very disciplined and ensure you set yourself a limit, and once you have hit that limit, move on to something else.
  • Open up each traffic exchange site in a separate tab such that each tab has a site active and ready for surfing.
  • As each traffic exchange site relies on timers in order for you to earn credit, you want to maximize the number of sites you surf at a given time period. The ultimate objective is to now surf from all the opened different traffic exchanges at the same time, but in different tabs on your browser.
  • Click on the first, and while that timer is counting down, immediately go to the second one click on the site, then the third and so on. To go quickly to the next tab, click on (Ctrl) + (Tab) on your keyboard. By the time you have clicked on the 5th exchange, the timer on the 1st one will have finished and will be ready for you to click on again
  • Carry on doing this till your allotted time is reached – say half hour per day. By Utilising this method you will notice that you are able to view more sites during a particular period and hence more visitors to your site(s), without spending any additional money or time.

If you decide to follow my tactics, you should upgrade your browser to Firefox and ensure you install the No Script add-on. This will stop most of the audio and pop-ups from the pages you view in the traffic exchange frame. Firefox is much more secure and quicker then Internet Explorer and it also makes it easier and faster to toggle between each tab and is much less likely to crash then Internet Explorer.

I recommend that you do not go for upgraded version of any of these TE sites right away, try them out for free first. When you start to notice good results from using traffic exchange sites for your network marketing business, you can then take up the option to upgrade to a premium package to drive more traffic to your site.

At the end of the day, it is all about a numbers game. The more frequently your ads appear, the better your chance of generating leads into your funnel.

PS: please feel free to share your experience with traffic exchange sites for network marketing or any other line marketing.

Regardless of whether you are just getting stated with internet marketing or perhaps you are just looking to expand on the knowledge you already have, this article may serve as your critical self-help guide to establishing and applying an effective internet marketing strategy.

Now, let’s get started with Keyword Strategy……

What is a Keyword?

Keywords are the single starting point for any internet marketing venture. A keyword is a word or phrase that people normally enter into search engines such as Google and Bling or any social media like Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.

 Why You Need Keyword Strategy

An increasing number of individuals are discovering businesses online through search engines such as Google. I mean, when people are looking for some kind of information online….the first place they go to is the search engine.

Just how do they discover them? Through the use of keywords!

The good news is it is possible to make the most of this consumer behaviour. Simply by optimizing your website around the keywords which are strongly related to your business and also the keywords and phrases that individuals are typing into search engines to locate you on the internet. This will very likely improve your odds of getting discovered by individuals browsing with these keywords and phrases and that will generate ever better high quality visitors to your business website.

Although it can be quite challenging trying to find out precisely which keywords will be getting the relevant individuals to discover your business. However, it is possible to ascertain the level of popularity and competition of a number of keywords.

Additionally, you can test out and evaluate how effective various keywords and phrases have been, in attracting targeted traffic to your web site.

Being a business owner, you will need to ensure that the appropriate individuals are finding your business on the internet.

How do you do that? Just carry on reading….

In this particular post, I am going to show you the best way to establish which keywords and phrases will increase your potential to get appropriate targeted visitors to your website from search engines like Google.

Keyword research is undoubtedly a continuous course of action that needs to be put into practice meticulously. Conducting a keyword research will provide you with useful understanding when it comes to industry trends and product or service demand from customers.

You will need to conduct extensive market and keyword research so that your business is able to develop its organic traffic and help you save from investing your money in pay-per-click (PPC) campaigns such as Google Ad Words.

How to Create Keyword Strategy

Below are three main important points you need to take note as you go about with your keyword research:

  • Write down up to 5 keywords that are relevant to your business.

Before you go creating your list of up to 5 keywords that are relevant to your business, you need to somehow put yourself in the shoes of your target market. If you are the one searching for your product or service in a search engine….what exactly will you be typing in the search box?

Bear in mind that I am not talking about your brand name…..but words and short phrases that kind of describe your business, products and/or services. Basically, words that speak to web searchers seeking your business

  •  Ensure your chosen keywords are relevant, complex and non-competitive

You will need to study your closest competitors and find out the keywords they are ranking high on. One of the best ways of achieving this is to type in your keyword list one after the other and make note of those sites that come up in search results – preferable the first page…..these are your online rivals!

Now, you must avoid some words that are purely “general words”…..words such as “business”, “marketing”, “advertising” etc. Such words are often highly competitive and are therefore very difficult to rank very well for them in search engines.

You can easily tell if a keyword is highly competitive by the volume of searches on that keyword. Obviously, the greater the volume of searches on a keyword, the more competitive that keyword is and hence, the more competitive it is. If you are quite new in the industry, then you will do well to choose less competitive keywords that are more specifically related to your business (these are usually referred to as long tail keywords).

There are a number of tools that are available out there that can help you to determine how competitive a specific keyword is. One fantastic tool that I use day to day is the Market Samurai.

Market Samurai is a basic keyword research tool with a number of functionalities that make every internet marketers’ keyword strategy easy tomarket samurai Keyword Strategy The Simplest Guide to Internet Marketing (1) perform. It has the capacity to act as a search engine optimization competition analyzer by providing you information on the websites that are contain the search term you’re trying to rank for.

Market Samurai does not only tell you the competitiveness of keywords but it also suggests and helps you brainstorm new keyword ideas, it can tell you the amount of backlinks to your competitors’ sites, the number of visitors they gets per day and also tell if such sites are indexed or not within the Yahoo databases.

Did I hear you say …”Why do you want to know what your competitors are doing?” SO THAT YOU CAN BEAT THEM AT THEIR GAMES AND RANK HIGH …IF NOT HIGHER! This is what internet marketing is all about! Battle of the fittest!

One more significant issue that you need to also bear in mind when choosing your keywords is their relevance to your particular business. Note that it can be quite tempting to use some ambiguous terms because they will be easy to rank for, the fact is…..they might not be relevant to your business. And if nobody is searching for such terms…..you and your site will just exit without anyone noticing.

So…

Ensure you get a balance between relevance and complexity when you are choosing your 5 keywords.

Ask yourself…. “Are each of these words harmonising my business well?”

Just one more thing….These 5 keywords do not have to be perfect in the early days. Feel free to try out various ones just to observe which ones are best suited for you.

  • Create and optimise your website around your keywords.

Now that you have chosen your best keywords that are relevant to your business, complex but non-competitive, your next assignment is (if you are yet to) create your website.

Once you have created your website, you will need to now showcase it to the world and start getting visitors. But how do you start getting traffic to your site? …..lots of traffic?

If you want to drive potential customers to your website, you basically have to optimise your wesite. Optimising your site will fundamentally help to boost your presence on the search engines – making it easy for people to find you!

Essentially, it involves you ensuring that you incorporate each one of your keywords as a feature into your website and do some other bits and pieces. We will talk more about this in the next series…..BE ON THE LOOK OUT!

If you are serious about taking your internet marketing business to the next level, you need Market Samurai’s sharp-witted power to help you stir your keyword strategy and also to enable you get an upper hand over your competitors.

How to Convert Your Website Traffic into Leads

Are you converting your website traffic to leads?

In today’s post we are going to tackle tips on how to convert your website traffic into leads. To make it easier to accomplish this, you will basically want to figure out which powerful offer you will provide freely to your prospects, create a call-to-action to make people aware of your offer, and create a capture page with a form so that your visitors can submit their information in order to obtain your FREE offer.

Then finally, you will need to test and analyse your results to determine how much of your website traffic are actually converting. Once you notice you are getting a good result you carry on iterating the whole process. Sure you will agree that it makes no sense sticking to a process that doesn’t achieve much.

Below is more a detailed guide to each step I touched on above – your sales and marketing conversion funnel:

  • Choose on Your Offer

Choosing your offer is the most essential part of the overall strategy. It is crucial simply because it is actually what is going to catch the attention of visitors to your website. Your offer needs to be compelling to ensure that it is the preliminary attractive force that grabs the interest of your respective website traffic; providing them with a rationale to complete the opt-in form you have created to acquire their details.

Also keep in mind that your offer will need to focus on the kind of leads you would like to catch the attention of. As an example, if you are a fitness instructor, you need to produce offers that could attract people who are looking to enhance their fitness. Likewise, if you are a sales advisor, you should be thinking about creating offers that catch the attention of business owners that are looking to boost their product sales approach.

There are different kinds of offers, the usual content material offers include things like study reports, how-to EBooks, slide presentation downloads or archived webinars. Other offers may include a totally free trial run or demo of your respective product or service like a personal consultation. Needless to say, there is absolutely no reason why you should be restricted by what is standard.

Use whatever you believe is useful for your targeted prospects. Please remember the fact that your offer is actually a dialogue starter so it must be created with the primary aim of starting up a conversation which will lead to relationship building and then eventually sales or business partners.

  • Create Calls-to-Action (CTA)

Once you have ultimately chosen your offer, you will need to produce a several gripping Calls-To- Actions (CTA). A call-to-action is usually a button or simply a hyperlink to an online site that appeals to an individual’s interest and guides that person to your squeeze page.

Within the landing page, the person is prompted to complete a form and submit contact details to be able to receive what is being offered. The visitor will then be converted to a lead with whom you can follow up. Your calls-to-action may be textual content, a graphic, or html code, nonetheless it must always incorporate a hyperlink to the related website landing page. When you have a highly effective call-to-action, you are bound to convert a very high percentage of your website targeted traffic into leads.

  • Create Landing Pages

Having created your call-to-action, you will need to build the landing page that it is going to connect to. The landing page will be the web page where by your website visitors arrive as soon as they simply click your call-to-action, and exactly where they are going to complete the form in order to receive your offer.

One tool that I have been testing out to create my landing pages is the OptimizePress. It is a fantastic WordPress Theme and sales suite software that has been specially designed to help create amazing squeeze (landing) pages, sales letters, launch pages and even membership sites, all from inside WordPress with a very simple point and click interface. OptimizePress literally makes it point and click simple to create all of the essential sales funnel pages needed, and makes creating great looking landing pages that converts an absolute breeze.

Click here ==> OptimizePress <== to discover more about its unique features and why it is essential for your business arsenal.

 

It never seizes to amaze me just how often people have calls-to-action that are not linked to a web page.

Whether deliberate or just due to negligence, the lack of a hyperlink will always make it more difficult for your website traffic to discover how to take advantage of what you have to offer, and so they will most likely throw in the towel. So always double, triple, and quadruple check to ensure that your entire Call-To-Actions are linked to their related landing pages.

As explained earlier in this post, a landing page houses the opt-in form where visitors submit information that enables them to obtain your offer. The details you get hold of may also be made use of by you to contact them. The moment people submit their information on the landing page, they ought to be sent straight to your thank-you web page where by they are able to gain access to the offer.

Be really clear in regards to what the offer is within your CTA. And also be precise. In case you are offering a free tutorial, say “Download our FREE X tutorial.” If on the other hand you are hosting a no cost webinar, then say “Register for our FREE webinar on X.” where X is clearly conveying a compelling good thing about obtaining the offer. This is far more powerful than “Download Now” or “Get a Free Article.” These are really not specific enough.

  • Test, Measure & Iterate

Your offers, calls-to-action and landing pages are the main components of the conversion process, however, you can’t hold on there. There is need for you to continually enhance your conversion process. Remember I said earlier that you need to create a number of CTAs?

You have to test out various CTAs, you ought to test several landing pages, you should also test out diverse offers, and then you certainly have to determine which versions most effectively enable you to accomplish your desired goals. After having a CTA, may be on your homepage for about a month or so, change the texting or replace with a completely new CTA, and soon after yet another month, evaluate which has executed the very best results.

If your landing page conversion rates are very low, shift the position or look of your opt-in form and study the outcomes. Don’t hesitate to try diverse variations; you could move back again in the event the previous variation worked much better. It’s going to be more than worth it whenever you have uncovered the most effective combination that raises your website’s conversions.

Remember: test, measure, and iterate the whole process.

Great Tips For Blogging About The World Of Technology

One way to boost your business or stand out personally is to start a blog. Blogging is becoming a pivotal part of our society and how popular some people can become. If you are eager to jump on the writing a blog bandwagon, then this article offers some helpful advice.

Strive to maintain a presence on your blog and be there when your readers have questions. Make a habit or routine for your readers and yourself. Your readers will start to expect your company on a regular basis once you forge these connections with them. When you feel unmotivated to continue with writing a blog, you might find the push you need to keep going by reminding yourself that you won’t be the only one who is disappointed.

Comment on other’s blogs in order to generate more interest in yours. If you are a user of Google Reader, have a different folder filled with other blogs you want to keep tabs on. Read your favorite blogs and comment on them regularly. Make sure your comments have value, but don’t hesitate to comment if you have something to say.

You should make every effort to add new content to your blog regularly. This will help you to increase traffic, as well as maintain the current visitors you have. If new content appears infrequently, visitors won’t be motivated to come back to your blog. Try to aim for posting at least one time every day.

While running a blog can be fun, don’t let it consume your life. If you don’t take a break, you run the risk of burning out. Make time for walks, visiting friends, or just a five minute break. This will recharge your batteries and make you a better blogger.

You want to make sure you are authentic. Don’t pretend that you know everything there is to know about your niche. Be open and honest. Keep this in mind at all times. Your blog is a reflection of yourself. Reaching for perfection is probably a waste of time, so focus on improving your site instead. If you happen to be incorrect, then you’re incorrect. Your blog is about expressing yourself, and you are a unique, valuable individual.

Try to keep your blog posts brief and on-topic to help hold the readers interest. Comprehensive coverage is no doubt important, but writing a 2000-word blog post is a good way to make sure that it is never read to the end. It’s not likely your readers will appreciate flowery language. People want content, not fluff.

Make lists an integral part of your blog. Whether you are running a blog about cooking and the various ingredients and tools you need to make a certain dish, or the parts you need to overhaul the engine of a 1967 VW van, lists are important. Using lists puts the information in a concise form, out front and center where it is easily viewed by your reader.

Keep up with your blog. You should do maintenance every so often to ensure your blog is easy to navigate and that everything is working properly. You can also update your layout as your site evolves. This ensures that your readers always enjoy visiting your blog.

So, you should be prepared to jump into the exciting world of blogs now. Always remember that the possibilities for your blog are limitless.

If you do this, you’ll have back-up posts you can use if you can’t think of any content to post that day.

Make sure your blog is in tip-top shape. Complete maintenance tasks often, such as checking for broken links and code or changing items within the layout to keep it fresh. This prevents reader’s boredom and facilitates site navigation.

Effective Article marketing Strategies To Help Build Your Business

If you are still wondering about what article marketing can do for your business or just looking for effective article marketing strategies to help build your business, then you will do well to follow the tips below.

Article Marketing

Research your niche to find out what other writers are saying. Look for things that have been overdone, and the areas that still need to be covered in your niche. Instead of copying the work of other writers, develop your own personal twists on a popular theme and go from there.

You can engage a reader effectively by telling a joke in the article’s first few lines. To sell the joke and keep your readers wanting to read more, however, you must make sure you select the right type. Every single joke does not come across well when read; some are meant for only telling in person. So, choose your jokes wisely. If you can discover which ones are good, your article will prosper.

You can still get a ton of direct traffic from it, which can lead to repeat readers. Check out ArticleAlley or ArticleBase for the top directories that are “No Follow.” You can also try ArticlesFactory and Buzzle. You should give them all a chance for the best results, and take advantage of the additional opportunities.

If you have a lot of articles about the same topic, you might consider publishing an eBook which contains all of them in a handy guidebook.

Easy Ways To Start Your Own Blog

Blogs may be started for pleasure or for purely business purposes. No matter what your purpose is, a blog is built from your thoughts and ideas. However, remember that it is important to create and maintain your blog the right way so that you attract the most visitors to your site. Read on for tips on building a blog that people will want to visit.

Keep your content fresh. To increase and maintain your traffic, you need to provide new content on a regular basis. If your blog hasn’t been updated in a long time, visitors will stop checking back. In general, you should try to post at least once a day.

Don’t copy anything you see. Plagiarism is really serious, and it can make you lose credibility by doing something like this. You do not have to be a professional writer to find success with a blog. The main thing that you need is to be passionate about what you are writing.

Take the feedback you receive in your post comments into account without getting angry. Whatever you are discussing, there will always be someone disputing or offering criticism. Expand upon constructive criticism to improve future blog postings. Be courteous when responding to negative commentary, but if it isn’t constructive then let it roll off of you. By being mature when dealing with commenters, you’ll get more respect from your readers and you may attract new readers.

Focus on your content when writing your blog. Be sure content is inspirational, informative and interesting. When you have honest, personal, quality content, readers are more likely to return.

Maintain your blog’s integrity by posting on a regular schedule. There are tons and tons of blogs out there, if you are not consistent with your postings, your blog’s readers will simply look elsewhere. With the exception of major holidays, every day should be a blogging day.

Take your blogging seriously. You should approach running a blog as a business, and you should always be researching and learning. Use seasoned bloggers as a good example to follow, and apply what you learn to your own techniques in a constantly evolving process. Improving your skills and incorporating new writing a blog ideas into your current project will keep you above your competition.

Promote your blog through social media outlets, but do not go overboard. If all you do is tweet blog links every five minutes, your tweets will soon be ignored by everyone. Provide interesting or useful content in your tweets to keep followers interested.

Your love and enjoyment of your blog is integral to its success. If you are not passionate about what you’re writing about, it will become boring to you and the readers. Find what you love writing about and have fun. Take pleasure in what you’re writing and the readers will enjoy reading it.

Think about what you want to achieve through your blog before you create it. Are you trying to build a business, or just make your name known. Do you want to use your blog to make money? You probably have a number of different goals. It’s very important to keep your goals in mind while you build your blog.

Give your readers easy access to you via a contact page. Make it clear how people can contact you by setting up a separate “contact me” page. You never know what kind of people will be reading your blog, and you might get some valuable feedback when you allow them to contact you.

Blog Posting is really nothing more than dedication, writing, and a few small tricks. Take advantage of what you’ve learned here, and use this advice to take your blog to great new heights. Where you go is completely your choice.
